    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Dominique, Jan 6, 2013.

    I'm Dominique. I'm a junior in high school who loves to writer. Also, I'm working towards getting into college for a masters in Clinical Social Work. I love to help people and talk to people, understand all points of views, especially the people with Severe Mental Illnesses and many different pasts. Human psyche fascinates me, but I also have a side myself that many of those around me are unaware of which brings me here, as a writer. "Turn your wounds into wisdom". I strive to take everything that has happened to me out in a creative way, to heal through writing, and also to educate people wanting to understand people like me, and to give out a sense of unity as well for those who have gone through the same as me.

    I've written many things, from poetry to prose. My teachers have very frequently and consistently been suggesting to submit or publish some of my works of literature. That has brought me to the community at wide to publish a few works to the forums of the internet, and find the reactions and views of people outside my home town. Really excited to do this and hope it'll help me move forward. So, I majoritarily write about PTSD, Flashbacks, Trauma, and mental disorders and effects such as schizophrenia, depression, Dissociative Identity Disorder, and others. Poetically and fictionally. Not like, non-fiction reports. Also slightly socially awkward, but yeah, hi!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Dominique!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
